Just wondering.. What kind of material is Rubber Guccissima leather? Is it rubber, leather, or is it leather coated with rubber?? Do any of you own a bag in this material?

In my opinion the surface looks like 100% rubber, but I'm not sure..

Rubber Guccissima Leather is rubber finished leather or rubberised leather. It gives the surface a very matte finish and should be waterproof and durable for the first few years.

Hmm.. -So the leather is "coated" in rubber? I suppose this line will vanish when the Gucci-non-PVC program starts.

I have high top sneakers in that leather.
It's definitely leather, very supple and mat.
It's not coated like a patent leather feels. It's very different - hard to describe.

Rubber is not involved in the Guccissima leather. Really issima in English means - est (ie prettiest) - in other words So Gucci! Guccissima is a word to describe the bag not a type of leather. I was confused about this myself so I asked - wanted to make sure I knew what I was purchasing. And the leather looks nothing like rubber nor does it feel like rubber. I am a LV girl and I have to say I am quite impressed with all Gucci leather goods.

Are you referring to the guccissima leather or the guccissima rubberized leather?

I was told it was a mix of leather and rubber fibers to make a water resistant leather which feels a bit like nubuck. The standard guccissima leather is a whole different ball game!
